CEO, Alexandra Draycott

Alexandra has first-hand experience of egg freezing and all the emotions that go with it. 7 years ago, in the middle of a divorce, Alexandra froze her eggs aged 34. Whilst having eggs “on ice” offered emotional reassurance at the time, in the subsequent years she wondered why so little after care was provided. She was also wondering what might come next, and simply did not know where to start.

Egg Advisor was born out of this deeply personal experience. Since realising that there were hundreds of women out there who also felt unsure about pathways around Egg Freezing, Alexandra decided to use her 20 years' experience leading strategy and innovation initiatives to set up a business that might also help other people in a similar position. Alexandra is responsible for driving Egg Advisor's day to day strategy and operations.
